Walgreens has laid of hundreds of employees in two different states amid cost-cutting measures at the company that includes paring down its physical stores and reducing staff numbers amid a shift in strategy in the business.

On Monday, the company told Newsweek that it will cut nearly 650 jobs in Dayville, Connecticut, and Orlando, Florida, as it reevaluates its business.

“We are focused on aligning our operational structure to best serve our patients and customers. This includes an evaluation of our distribution center operations in order to streamline capacities to best support our stores,” a company official told Newsweek in a statement.

“After a careful review, we’ve made the difficult decision to close our distribution centers in Dayville, Connecticut, and Orlando, Florida, resulting in the elimination of approximately 646 total roles.”
